More so now than ever, the daily stressors, past emotional issues, societal pressures put a burden on our mental health leading to a variety of mental disorders and negative coping methods. Please contact me for support.
I am a specialist in the assessment and management of mental disorders including clinical depression, bipolar affective disorders, schizophrenia, social and generalized anxiety, etc.
I am also an addiction psychiatrist specialising in the management of alcohol misuse/dependency, Illicit and prescribed drugs dependencies. I offer recovery focused assessment and management interventions that are non-judgmental and person centred. I support my patients in their recovery journey towards abstinence from illicit and prescribed drugs, alcohol, legal highs and other addictive behaviours.
I have a special interest in the management of people with dual diagnosis (co-existing mental illness and drugs/alcohol dependency or misuse. This is an area that has a lot of stigma; people with co-existing mental illness and substance misuse are often left unsupported.
I have a recovery focused approach. I believe there should be a collaborative approach, meaning my patients are very much involved in their treatment plans and recovery. Keeping in mind, that mental illness not only affect the patients but also loved ones hence working with other like-minded colleagues, a holistic approach to treatment and support is offered.
